how to measure a man

If not by time
then by the
accumulation
of his words
and by the vagueness
of which they
resemble a flower
or see how he
takes a hammer
and drives the nail
creating that
which was lacking
prior to his efforts

– A. Ramirez

How to Measure a Man, taken from my book of poetry “Man is the Bastard which you can purchase on Amazon.
